The city stood still to welcome the PM
The traffic movement in the city came to a standstill by evening. The traffic situation had already began to worsen by noon. The city dwellers suffered sporadic to heavy traffic gridlocks in different areas of Dhaka, especially at Airport road and Mirpur. In pursuit of giving the Prime Minister a warm welcome, scores of followers and supporters flooded the streets creating a near intractable traffic gridlock in the highways of Dhaka.

A facebook user, Proloy Hasan, posted an elaborate status on his entire experience of commuting through Dhaka saying: “It seemed like time has simply stopped, and I am stuck in the jam forever.” Some compared the traffic situation in different areas: Wahid Ahmed wrote: "What happened to this country... Reception of political leaders are really valuable.. Dhaka city is now stuck down in heavy traffic as we have to pay for litters of fuel and CNG... Just waste of money and time...." Mack Al Mamun wrote: "If you are planning to go outside today, go at your own risk. I covered less than 2km in 30-40 mins, which made me turn our car and return back home."
